Sinful Sirens Blog Hop

Thank you to Under the Covers and Guilty Pleasures for hosting this hop!

Today I’d like to introduce you to my latest release through Decadent Publishing titled Chica Bella. Things get downright sinful between a Navy SEAL and a fiery Mexican woman in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.

Carly Fall » Where Fantasy Meets Romance

Blurb

Landon “Blackhawk” Walker is ready to get out of the Navy SEALs. He has seen and done enough, and can’t wait to get to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico where three tasks await him: get back into civilian mode, take a boat out to the El Arco Rocks, and win back the heart of the woman he lost because of his career.

Maya Gonzalez has tired of the heartbreak that comes with Landon’s deployments year after year. When he walks back into her life again, she cannot deny her heart, despite her reservations. As they lose themselves in each other and the beauty of Cabo their passion is rekindled once again.

Maya knows that one phone call means deployment for Landon, putting an end to their reunion, and possibly their relationship.

Excerpt:

When he took her in his arms, the relief of her decision washed through her. It was simple: she needed to be with him. Her body burned for him, her soul longed for him.
As he pressed his lips to hers, her knees went weak, and she quickly wrapped her hands around his neck to prevent her from falling to the ground in a heap of swooning woman.
It was as if he had never left, as if she had kissed him yesterday. She found she became comfortable in his arms as her body came close to reaching the boiling point where desire overran any rational thought.
“Landon,” she murmured into his lips.
“I’m right here, sugar, right here.”
His lips were everywhere—her neck, her lips, her earlobes. His hands…his hands were everywhere his lips weren’t—her breasts, her waist, her back, her hips.
His hands slid down her leg until it reached the hem of her sundress. She felt the breeze from the fan as the dress came up her thigh. His hand cupped her left buttock.
“Sweet Jesus, Maya,” his voice whispered in desperation as his hand slipped up to her lower back. “You’re going commando, honey. Are you trying to kill me?”

Cohen’s Playlist

When writing a book, the characters are always chattering in my head.

Cohen was particularly talkative, even putting together his own playlist. Usually, while driving, a song would come on the radio and it just “fit” the story perfectly.

So, here’s Cohen’s playlist.

Lonely is the Night – Billy Squier

It’s a high time to fight when the walls are closin’ in

Call it what you like

it’s time you got to win

Lonely, lonely, lonely

your spirit’s sinkin’ down

You find you’re not the only stranger in this town

 

Somebody that I Used to Know – Gotye

Now and then I think of all the times you screwed me over

But had me believing it was always something that I’d done

But I don’t wanna live that way

Reading into every word you say

You said that you could let it go

And I wouldn’t catch you hung up on somebody that you used to know-oh-oh

Bent – Matchbox Twenty

Can you help me I’m bent

I’m so scared that I’ll never

Get put back together

You’re breaking me in

And this is how we will end

With you and me bent

Breaking the Habit-  Linkin Park

I don’t know what’s worth fighting for
Or why I have to scream.
I don’t know why I instigate
And say what I don’t mean.
I don’t know how I got this way
I’ll never be alright
So I’m breaking the habit,
I’m breaking the habit
Tonight

Chasing Cars Snow Patrol

All that I am

All that I ever was

Is here in your perfect eyes, they’re all I can see

I don’t know where

Confused about how as well

Just know that these things will never change for us at all

If I lay here

If I just lay here

Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

The Sound of Silence – Simon and Garfunkel
For this one, I was in the grocery store!
Hello darkness, my old friend,
I’ve come to talk with you again,
Because a vision softly creeping in,
Left its seeds while I was sleeping,
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains
Within the sound of silence.

 

Heartbreaker Blog Hop

Welcome to the Heartbreaker Blog Hop!

I think we’ve all been exposed to a heartbreaker at one point, whether it was many years ago, or sometimes those we currently love can break our hearts the hardest.

My biggest heartbreak happened when I was eighteen, a long distance relationship that went awry. My heart was broken for many years after. Yes, years. It was a beautiful relationship while it lasted, but as they say, people who are in your past are there for a reason! 🙂

On February 11, I have a contemporary romance coming out titled Time or Money through Bottom Drawer Publications in conjunction with their four-book short story Valentine’s Day collection.

Mason is a man who grew up in poverty. He is driven to make partner in his firm, however, this comes at a price to his marriage.

Bridget, his wife, is miserable in the marriage. She feels that he is married to the job, and not her. She sometimes longs for the days when they were dirt poor, but happy.

Mason is determined to get their relationship back on track, and picks Valentine’s Day to make that happen with a surprise for Bridget. Through a set of circumstances beyond her control, Bridget doesn’t get Mason’s messages, and decides that divorce is in their future.

At the end of the day when they both arrive at home, anger and passions flare, and they both need to decide what is more important:

Time or Money?

I’d like to introduce you to Destiny’s Shift, my latest release, and the fourth installment in the Six Saviors Series.

Click for excerpts and reviews. And please note that the 1st book in the Six Saviors Series is free at all major ebook outlets

One hundred and fifty years ago, Warrior Jovan of the Six Saviors realized he had a gift: the ability to feel emotions through touch. Over the years, the gift has intensified allowing him to hear others thoughts, and this uncontrolled skill has forced him to keep his distance from both humans and those of his race. He fears the impact on his sanity if he doesn’t.

Liberty, an SR44 female has come to Earth by a set of circumstances beyond her control. Born into a life of servitude on SR44, she is alone, afraid, and stumbling her way through learning the customs and language of her new home on Earth. When Jovan meets Liberty, it becomes clear that they are of the same species, and Jovan takes Liberty under his wing, despite his commitment to himself to limit interaction with others.

As Liberty reveals the reasons for her coming to Earth, it becomes apparent that the Six Saviors are in danger, not only from the FBI, but also from those who have journeyed to Earth with Liberty, and they are seeking revenge. Jovan must quickly learn to control his gift, and Liberty is the only one who can help him. As they deal with danger from all sides, Jovan and Liberty must find a way to compromise on the lives they desire, or they will be forced to go their separate ways.
